We ended up staying here longer than we thought, such a great, social hostel. We had a double room, which was big and comfy. The shower was a tad temperamental, but was always hot and good pressure. The social area was great, always plenty of other travellers to chat too. The bar was reasonably priced. Wifi worked in the social...

My friend and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in June. The hostel common room is nice as there is a good social atmosphere, a pool table, decent internet, and you can buy food. They also have a great selection of homemade sweets like cakes, brownies, pies and cheesecakes. I had a few slices of brownie and found...

This is a lovely hostel. Great owners, we got a very good deal staying here. Its very social so you'll meet other travellers easily to hang out with. The only thing is that the meals aren't great, stick with pizza and you'll be fine ;-)

It is pretty close to the baths, the beer is cheap, the kitchen is great, the rooms are good, the location is secure, and the common area is clean and fun.

Upon arrival the staff ignored us until I asked if someone could help, at which the reply was "oh yeah I am working" so, not a great start. We were then informed that they had overbooked and we were moved to a private dorm for one night. This room smelt horrendous, it smelt damp although the staff member told us...

This hostel is so friendly and communal with good relaxing and drinking areas. Deals and free dinner on most evenings and a lovely breakfast with fresh fruit juice and croissants. Staff are friendly and rooms are clean, comfortable, secure and spacious. Tours from here are also reasonably priced and great fun. Would love to have spent longer than a week...
